Kaibab Camper Village offers the ultimate camping experience at the Grand Canyon North Rim. We're the only campground on the North Rim with full RV hookups, and we can even accommodate big rigs over 40 feet. We also have tent sites and one cabin-style room.
The North Rim is off the beaten path, quiet and secluded. From Kaibab Camper Village it is only a 40 mile drive along the beautiful North Rim Parkway (State Route 67) to the Canyon rim.
Our campground is nestled in tall pines, surrounded by the Kaibab National Forest and adjacent to Jacob Lake and a beautiful meadow. Unfortunately, Jacob Lake is actually a pond, and there is no swimming or fishing allowed.
The nearby forest and Grand Canyon have great hiking and nature trails, and horseback riding is also available in the area. To learn more about the North Rim, you may want to attend the Forest Service's interpretive programs in their newly restored historic ranger cabin and stop by the Kaibab National Forest Visitor Information Center.
Rates vary depending on site.
We waited too long to plan our Grand Canyon North Rim trip so this place was the only option for full hooks up on the North Rim. It’s a good back up option If the National Park sites are all booked. The North Rim only receives about 10% of the overall visitors to the GCNP, so its way less crowded and worth the trip. If you’re looking to ride your dirt bike/ATV, this might be the perfect site. We didn’t bring ours, but we wished he had since there are trails near by the site.
On the drive into the park you can see deer (lots at twilight) and bison.
Pros: lots of trees, toilets, sinks and fire pits. Market onsite with essentials. Access to off road trails for ATVs/dirt bikes.
Cons: The sites are very small and cramped. 45 minute drive to the rim. “Jacob Lake” is a pond- set your expectations accordingly. You have to pay for showers.
Look, it's a nice campground, but the spaces are right on top of each other, which for me is undesirable…. but, if everything else is full, you'll welcome the spot!
It was $18/night for a tent site with access to pit toilet bathrooms and showers (though if you want to shower you have to pay an extra $5). There was a large group there at the same time that I was, which made for a less peaceful experience. Offers full hook-ups for RV's, which made it popular with big rigs. The best part about it was the proximity to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, which is said to get only 10% of the crowds compared to the much more crowded South Rim.
It was great! Clean and peaceful! Great place to camp!
It was easy to find and clean
